Our Elite Digital Hot Wire Strip Heater is one of the most versatile and advanced strip heaters available.  It is available in four working lengths from 1220mm to 3050mm, with all machines capable of heating materials from 1mm to 25mm in thickness.  The ability to specify the number of heating beams required, from one to six, ensures that your Elite Digital Strip Heater is configured to meet your exact requirements.

Heater Beams
The Heater Beam design is the core of the Elite range.  Each beam can accommodate up to four wires below and four wires above the material to be heated.  Wires are individually tensioned to ensure that they remain at a consistent distance from the material even on longer machines.  They are adjustable for spacing and distance from the material on the calibrated wire guides, and wires can be easily isolated if not required.

The Upper Beam is pneumatically operated, with a cycle timer built into the control of the machine.

Work Supports hold the material above the heating wires, these are adjustable in and out to provide further control of the heating characteristics.  The Elite heater beams have been carefully designed with no protrusions, so that beams can be brought right together with intermediate work supports removed.  This allows a wide heating trough to be created, ideal for heating very thick materials.

Power Packs

The base frame of the machine houses the low-voltage power packs that operate the heating wires.  Each Power Pack will operate up to 16 heating wires.  With a maximum of three power packs being able to be fitted to each machine, this means that up to 48 heating wires can be operated.  While the normal setup would be to have up to six heater beams and three Power Packs, with each Power Pack operating two beams, this can be tuned to specific applications upon request.

Rear Control

The machine is normally operated from the front only.  However the addition of the optional Rear Table allows the heater beams to be split, with some operated from the front and some from the rear.  This means that the machine can be used for two completely different jobs simultaneously, while being able to be brought back to single-user operation very quickly.

Slide Rails

All of the Heater Beams sit on slide rails, allowing them to be moved to  the correct position.  There are three lengths of slide rail available, 1220, 1850 and 2400mm

Beam Positioning System

With the Digital positioning system, the Heater Beams are mounted onto precision linear slides, and are clamped in position with pneumatic clamps.

In use, the required beam positions are entered onto a 5.7in colour touchscreen on the machine table.  A stepping motor drive moves the heater beams to position, with absolute position encoders at either end of each beam verifying the actual beam position.

Sets of beam positions can be named and stored, along with cycle times, for ease of recall at any time.

For Digital machines with Rear Tables, the configuration of beams from the front and the rear is also stored with each setting.
